So, I'm really good at Trivia Crack. Would it benefit my career to allow my nurse manager to beat me, or should I defeat her?

Is Trivia Crack what I think it is?

Never mind. Looked it up. Not what I had suspected. I would let her win a lot of the time, but not necessarily all of the time.

I can see this going both ways. Defeating her might increase her respect for you, or it might make her feel inadequate and angry. She might then take it out on you.

We need a few critical facts here:

1. What is your manager's maturity and professionalism level? Do you have supporting documentation for it?

2. Are you young and/or inexperienced, and therefore at risk for being eaten by said manager? Is she a COB who might resort to such tactics?

3. On a scale from 1 to 10, 1 being "I work for fun" and 10 being "my family will end up in a Dickensian workhouse," how badly do you need this job?

Personally, I'd mop the floor with her. I show no mercy when it comes to Trivia Crack.

And, I can 'mop the floor' with her, or any other comers for that matter!

Whoop her ass. It's character building, managers need a constant flow of character building experiences.

You should not friend your manager on social media.

My 16 yr old son has been beating one of his teachers, I hadn't thought it at the time but now I wonder if she's letting him beat her.

It really depends on your work relationship, my manager respects my field knowledge and experience and often uses me as a resource, there's no competition between our roles, if anything she would probably be disappointed if I were always losing.

That sounds like a challenge :)
